Year 6 students at Raddlebarn School held their own political 'Question Time' with Steve on Friday. Questions ranged from 'How much do MPs earn?' to local issues about the future use of the Selly Oak Hospital Site, gangs, the Olympics, and international issues like Libya and Human Trafficking.


Steve said, ‘This a very talented group of young people. I met them previously on a visit to Westminster and I’m really impressed with their knowledge and concern for others. There are some future budding politicians in this group without a doubt.’

Selly Oak MP Steve McCabe today paid a visit to Selly Oak Trust School to meet with year 10 and 6th Form pupils to take part in a Question Time event where youngsters demonstrated a wide knowledge of current affairs and concerns. Questions ranged from: Why has Educational Maintenance Allowance been abolished? What will happen to our school transport? Are the cuts going to affect our school? What does an MP do and how much are you paid? Did Labour leave the country in debt? Have you met David Cameron and what do you think of him?
